So, as I was saying, today's cards are Valentines. I used the new stamp set You Plus Me, and a piece of the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I started with a card base of Calypso Coral, topped with a front of Crisp Cantaloupe. I punched the border with the new Confetti Hearts punch, and then embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I layered a piece of the Stacked with Love DSP over a piece of coral card stock, and tied a ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Accessory pack. The circles are rolled over the Coral ink pad to darken the edges, and the Whisper White card stock was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe and popped up over the DSP with Stampin' Dimensionals.

This is a kind of fancy fold, the card base in Coral is 4.25 x 5.5", not folded - just a flat card. I cut a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe to 4 x 9.25", and scored and folded it at 5.25" This was to give the Confetti Heart Punch a peek through of the darker Coral, and to create an interesting card - special, just like its recipient!

I rounded the corners of all the edges, and layered another piece of Whisper White card stock inside, with more stamps in Coral and Cantaloupe. You can see the inside is shorter, and opens at the Cantaloupe layer. I like how this stamp set includes some front-of-card sentiments, but they can also be used inside the card. Options! ;-)

The second card is similar, I skipped the inside stamping. and added the ribbon in a different way, with a button from the Best Year Ever Accessory pack, embellished with some of the heart Confetti!

You can see how the top layer lifts up and you can see the inside of the card through the hearts. I used a Cantaloupe circle behind the sentiment, and didn't roll the edges of the circles. The circles are also stacked flat, like all the layers. The inside I left plain:

Fun stuff coming tomorrow! Can't wait 'till you see all the goodies in the Occasions Catalog!
